Picture of a woman with a sore throat holding her neck and grimacing in pain.If you’re experiencing a persistent sore throat, you need prompt care. Luckily, if you’re in Franklin, Massachusetts, or a nearby area, you won’t need to go far to get the first-rate treatment you deserve. Simply visit PhysicianOne Urgent Care, a respected immediate care center that’s been certified and accredited by the Urgent Care Association (UCA). As with all of our urgent care services, we offer sore throat treatment on a walk-in basis (with advanced scheduling also available).

Do You Need Professional Sore Throat Treatment?

If you have a sore throat, you may be trying to decide between using natural throat infection remedies and calling a doctor. Throat pain can often be relieved using the following at-home sore throat remedies:

  • Taking over-the-counter pain medication, anti-inflammatory medication, or a decongestant
  • Sipping warm liquids (for example, tea or soup)
  • Sucking on a throat lozenge
  • Gargling with salt water

However, if your throat is still sore after a few days, you should reach out to an experienced medical professional, such as the ones at PhysicianOne Urgent Care. After speaking with you about your symptoms, performing an examination, and conducting any necessary lab tests, we’ll recommend the sore throat treatment that’s best suited to your needs. For example, while strep throat treatment generally requires prescription antibiotics, treatment for a sore throat caused by gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) may instead involve histamine-2 blockers or antacids.

"The overall care I received was excellent! I also appreciate your affiliation with Yale New Haven Hospital."

Derby, CT

"Throughout the visit I felt like the staff really cared. The Doctor took his time talking with me about my symptoms, and I felt like he listened to all my concerns and took that into consideration when recommending the right treatment. Thank you!"

Hamden, CT

"I had to take my son in for an ear infection following a sudden change in temperament at daycare. He was inconsolable the entire car ride but when we got there and by the time we left this care facility he was back to his normal happy go lucky little two year old boy. I highly recommend PhysicianOne Urgent Care."

Westwood, MA

"I wanted to take a moment to thank you for the attention you gave me last week. My son was started on antibiotics and ear drops. Within 24 hours he began to feel better. The poor kid had been going to school in tears because he was afraid of missing any more days, but feeling (and looking) just awful! He's not been able to even think about lacrosse practice, but thanks to starting him on antibiotics, he was thrilled to return to practice today."
